  • Popsicle forms and popsicle sticks

Directions

    1. In a small sauce pan, add the sugar and 1/2 cup water over medium heat. Cook just until the sugar has melted. Remove from heat and drop in ginger. Set aside until cooled. (Remove ginger when ready to use!)
    2. Slice cantaloupe in half and scoop out seeds. Spoon cantaloupe flesh into a blender. Blend until smooth.
    3. Add just enough of the cooled ginger syrup to sweeten as desired. Save the remaining syrup for another use.
    4. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze overnight. For a variation, push a few sliced strawberries down into the popsicle molds before freezing.

  1. I love the idea of these popsicles. They seem like they would be so refreshing and with the stiflingly hot weather we’ve been having in North Carolina the last few weeks, they would be a welcome treat. I’ve pinned them and will give them a try. Do you think they could be made with some kind of sugar substitute? Anyway, thanks for the idea and thanks for hosting Inspire Me Monday.

    1. I think you could get creative and add something else or maybe even some agave syrup. Thanks for stoping in today!
